    One of my favorite Finland Facts is the one about Finland having more metal bands per capita than any other country in the world. Rock on!

    I only knew about the alcohol cruise thing, cause its also going on in Helsinki-Tallinn ships, but i learned 13 new things about Finland today! And the most weirdest fact for me was that the Burger King has sauna in it 😀 Its kind of weird to go eat a burger naked in a sauna with other strangers who are eating a burger as well

      Went to that sauna for Sauna Day this year. It was actually a really nice sauna. We didn’t eat in the sauna, but in the area just outside of the sauna room.

    Instead of a Burger King with an in-store sauna, it should be a White Castle. Their burgers are steam cooked anyhow, why not cook the burgers *IN* the sauna! ?

    The number of metal bands tells you something about the national character and the state of mind of the people. Wussy wankers who believe in nonsense ancient myths, speak like bears (seldom, only in summertme and while horny ) and go grazy when in drunk.

    2017 German Passport excels over Finnish (and the others).
    And yes, those ferries to Sweden are there not for the booze, they truly are extensions of E-roads. Cheaper booze is bought from the ferries between Finland and Estonia.
